Aroma of malt and honey with a hint of hops. Quite clear, medium brown color. Medium body. Flavors are malt forward with a slightly sweet mid-pallet, finishing with more malt and just enough hops to keep it from being overly sweet. I nice representation of the style. glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pours a dark amber with medium head. Very drinkable, medium bodied brown ale with light roast, a little chocolate and nuts, and an assertive balancing bitterness. Not going to blow you away with flavor, but it’s not meant to. Just a nice session brown and I’d have no problem throwing a few back. Cheers to Red Hook for this one.

I was pretty pleased with this brew. Pours amber with an off-white/beige head. Caramel and hoppy aroma with a hint of chocolate in the taste. Gotta love brown ales. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2010

Medium brown bodies with a moderate whitish head. Nutty, chewy malt profile. Mild, crisp, refreshing. Sessionable American brown ale. Crisp, concise, and delicious.

Aroma is very light and of nuts and malt. Pours very clear coppery brown with thin off white head but plenty of lacing. Taste is a very nice malt showcase. Carmel and roasted nuts clearly present. Long finish. Lightly sweet. Medium bodied. Very limited floral hop character. This was very enjoyable brew. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and laced the glass well. Pleasant aroma of malt and caramel. The flavor is equally pleasant with the same malt and caramel. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. No problems. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 21, 2013
First, it says Brown ale, not spring ale. Was nice and a little nutty like a brown ale should. NIce aftertatse and very hopy. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 9, 2010
On tap. Poured a reddish brown with a milky tan head. Aroma of fruit, nuts, caramel and bread. Flavor was surprisingly solid. Rich caramel and cocoa notes, with nuts and fruit. Sweet. Nice beer. poisoneddwarf (2639) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2010
12 oz bottle into giant dimpled mug. Faint tart aroma. Caramel and nutty smells come out as the beer warms. Pours brown with little head, decent lacework. Definitely nutty flavor (I’m reminded of hazelnut coffee creamer). Medium carbonation, medium body. I love nut brown ales. This one is pretty average. Definitely not bad, though.
